Ometraco.com , MALANG – Arema FC coach Javier Roca supports Argentina in the Qatar 2022 World Cup.
The Chilean tactician said that Argentina even had a big chance of winning because it had a number of quality players.
“For me, because I’m a neighbour, I see Argentina have quality players. I think Argentina has a great opportunity to (win) this World Cup,” said Roca in Malang, East Java, Friday.
Roca explained that the team, which was reinforced by the world’s best player, Lionel Messi, was a very solid and compact team. In addition, other players who strengthen Argentina also have above average quality.
According to him, Argentina’s main competitors to win the 2022 World Cup include Brazil, Germany, Spain and others. A number of these countries, also have a composition of players who are not inferior in quality to Argentina.
“Argentina are a strong and compact team. Besides that, Argentina also has the best player in the world, Messi,” he said.
He added, at the Qatar 2022 World Cup this time, Chile could not appear because it failed in the South American zone qualifying phase. Chile was unable to compete with Argentina, Brazil, and Uruguay, who ensured themselves to qualify for Qatar.
“Chile’s golden generation is over. Players like Alexis Sanchez, Vidal, are getting old. So for this World Cup, we have to miss first,” he said.
